Fabulous find!
So happy that Bukhara exceeded your expectations! Your photos are great and the whole place sounds wonderful.

Hope your next destination has tourist hype because it's so fantastic!

Get you and your camera to Bukhara
Glad you enjoyed our tale on Bukhara, it is by far our favourite place on this trip, unfortunately our next destination Khiva was perhaps our worst which you will red about soon. You have to get over here Tara, your photography is the best, and I could only imagine how good your photos would be.
